Hi all, haven't been here for awile, most probably since that horrible heatwave from hell back in Feb.

Anyway, I've seen these images flashed around the internet from time to time. They look like infrared temperature maps of Australia, but everytime I've seen them, they are of crappy low res quality.

Does anyone know the source of these maps. It says on the bottom right corner, but the resolution is so low the text is blurred.

Thanks

Hi Greenyellow,

The map is from Weatherzone as it has the WZ logo down there in the corner. It looks different to Weatherzone Layers and I can't find such a map elsewhere on Weatherzone Pro either.
So I'm guessing it's probably an internal product used by the Weatherzone staff?

I think more to the point, they are great overviews of the entire country's temperature trends, and when a number of them are placed into a sequence, it gives us (wherever we may be in the country) a good oversight of where heatwaves and coolspots are coming from and going to.

It would be great to have daily access to the last 48 hours of sequenced maps for the benefit of us general weather watchers.

For example that last feed from twitter would give us sydney siders some warning of the heat that was building up in Victoria and Southern Australia.

I'm suspecting the staff inside weatherzone have constant access to these, and wondered if they could please consider publishing these along side the normal synoptic and satellite maps one sees on their local weatherzone page.
